Hi,
How do I use the Date parameter field in a report in the select query of the same  report.
ie,
I am calling the report from VB. Yes the parameter passes and I can get it in the report.

My SQL Query of the crystal report should look something like:
select <records> where accDate = <parameter field>

Thanks,
Ram

Assuming your parameter is named dateparm, you refer to the entire parameter as {?dateparm} in formulas.

To pass the date to SQL, you may need to parse the parameter which is of date/time type to be of date type only using datevalue({?dateparm}).  Your version os SQL may also require that the date appear as a string, in which case your where clause would be

"...where accDate = '" + totext({?dateparm},"mm/dd/yyyy")
